Motorola Extends DreamGallery™ TV Experience to More Devices

Innovative cloud-based virtualization technology delivers DreamGallery's award-winning video experience to a broader range of set-tops

HORSHAM, Pa., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola today announced that its award-winning DreamGallery™ technology is newly available on an expanded range of devices—thanks to new virtualization technology.

DreamGallery now uses virtualized cloud-rendering to make TV experiences as rich and easy as surfing the Web—on a variety of devices, including low-cost, entry-level Motorola set-tops. DreamGallery traditionally requires set-tops capable of running an HTML5 browser, but this new virtual module renders HTML5 in the cloud, enabling service providers to offer advanced, dynamic and personalized entertainment experiences to more existing subscribers. The new module is flexible, scalable and low-latency, providing a consistent and snappy user experience on existing Motorola set-tops that would not otherwise have the memory or processing power to deliver DreamGallery.

"DreamGallery is extending its award-winning multi-screen navigation and entertainment experience to millions of Motorola set-tops in subscriber homes today," said John Burke, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Converged Solutions, Motorola Mobility. "Consumers want to find content faster and enjoy it on any device. Our service provider customers are eager to address this demand with rich DreamGallery experiences, but are constrained by the cost and complexity of upgrading their set-top boxes. Now, this cloud-based virtual module lets them deliver this next-generation experience to more subscribers."

DreamGallery is the user navigation component of Motorola's Medios+ platform for multi-screen video distribution. DreamGallery's next-generation entertainment experience has already been widely deployed in Europe. And its footprint is growing in North America: Verizon being the latest service provider announcing plans to use DreamGallery to let its consumers navigate thousands of titles on FiOS Home in the United States.

Now, DreamGallery is taking that even further, enabling quick and personalized searches, customized media, and smart recommendations—on more devices. The advantage is clear: consumers can find exactly what they want on their favorite screen.

Key advantages of the DreamGallery virtual module include:

  • DreamGallery technology for a dynamic, Internet-like TV experience on legacy devices
  • Consistent DreamGallery experience with all HTML5 browser-based devices (set-tops, tablets, smartphones and other connected devices)
  • Leverages the advanced HTML5 cloud rendering capabilities of ActiveVideo Networks' CloudTV H5™ platform for low-latency H.264 or MPEG2 delivery and seamless content navigation and consumption

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
